that in the book. i feel as if barack obama is in a position where, whenever he talks about race, his unfavorable ratings with white voters go up precipitously. and we saw that when henry lou guess gates, the noted professor at harvard got arrested inside his team when neighbors thought they saw burglars. he talked about it during a press conference and his unfavorable rate went up with white voters and in a sense he was pressured to find another way to talk about that issue, and of course we remember the infamous beer comment. the same thing happened when he talked about trayvon martin. he said this young teen, trayvon martin, unarmed black teen, killed in a subdivision by a neighborhood watch volunteer, he said if i had a son he would look like trayvon, and that helped ignite a conservative backlash to that situation simply because the president spoke in terms that could be related to race. i think he has quite rightly sort of intuited they're not a lot of upside to him talking about race when hi is president and there's a lot of down side for democrats and himself, and is a say in the book i c

administrator of the office of information and regulatory affairs in the obama white house in the president's first term. he described in a "new york times" article how properly packaged messages of hate can spread and how hard it is for fact and reason to catch up. let me read that. suppose you saw with a strong, but basely conviction, that nefarious people conspire against your kind. the best medicine is no medicine. if so, you can ready discover the support for your views because of web, too, enclaves of like-minded people are found or emerge in an instant. a lot of empirical work establishes that when people sort themselves to such enclaves, they tend to become more confident, more unified, and more extreme, so is technology making people more dismissive of views, more toller rand of extremist views? >> i think of the internet as a force multiplier, good and bad. to the extent what technology does is give us access to so many more people, and they would not get off line for practical reasons, could come together, and so it exacerbates our tendencies to think a certain way and to the ext

conversations] >> president obama held a news conference earlier today at the white house, marking the 100th day of his second term in office. he discussed a range of issues come including use of chemical weapons in syria. the investigation into the boston marathon bombings and immigration. here is part of those comments now about syria. >> even separate from the chemical weapons issue, what is happening in syria is a blog -- on the international general public got to make sure we do everything we can to protect the syrian people. in that context, what i've also said is the use of chemical weapons would be a game changer. not simply for the united states, but the international community. the reason is that established international law norms that say we use these kinds of weapons. you have the potential of killing massive numbers of people in the most inhumane way possible. the proliferation rusks are so significant we don't want that genie out of the box. so when i said the use of chemical weapons would be a game changer, that was in a position unique to the united states and it shouldn't been

the overall economy. what do you think? should we do that? and even in congress and the white house both president obama and members of congress, paul ryan, have proposed limiting average medicare spending per beneficiary to gdp growth at 0.5%. we don't hear much about that. but both of them have proposed limits, because they know that trajectory that we're on. what do you think? should we have limits to how much we spend? the health care reform law had proposed ap independent advisory board, it'd be set up with 15 members appointed by the president, confirmed by the senate, and members would recommend ways to curb medicare spending. it was based on the base realignment and closure commission. we had to close a lot of military bases. it's very hard for elected officials to make those decisions to close a military base in their own constituency, so they ceded that responsibility to experts, and congress had to agree or disagree. that was the model used for the independent payment advisory board. it cannot change medicare raise premiums, cut benefits, and if congress doesn't like the recom

just bring their partisan conflicts into the white house? would mitt romney and barack obama really cooperate? that's what they framers were talking about. alecer in hamilton talks about multiple presidents, rivalries. it don't thing that would happen. in fact the very good reason to think they'll develop a cooperative relationship. first, they wouldn't have incentives to have conflictual ual don connect newell relationships in tip tall power, sharing settings, each person or different people feel that by maneuvering and jockeying for power they can establish a dominant position, but in a college presidency i -- coalition presidency i propose no amount of maneuvering or back-stabbing or doing whatever else could lead to a dominant position. no matter what it would be a 50-50 relationship for the current term and after re-election. so there wouldn't be incentive to engage in conflict. more than that there would be a very important incentive to cooperate. when presidents reach the white house, they're at the top of the political ladder. at that point, the primary concern is the legacy

barry jo white -- mary jo white, chairman of the securities and exchange commission. chairman white was appointed by president obama in january and confirmed by the senate last month. the exceptionally strong bipartisan support she received in the confirmation process is, i think, a real testament to the extraordinary experience she brings to her office and to the long and successful record of her prior public service. you know, in today's often polarized political environment that kind of bipartisan support augers very well, indeed, for her leadership of the sec. in public life chairman white is best known for her nine years as the united states attorney for the southern district of new york. as you know, that office litigates some of the most important and complex criminal and civil cases in the nation. during her tenure there, chairman white certainly saw her share of these including prosecutions stem thing from the bombings of the -- stemming from the bombings of the world trade center in 2001, 1993 and of our embassies in kenya and tanzania in 1998. in the private sector, chair

, white americans especially we said would never be able to do that. and i think one of the moments that, for me, was so powerful during the election was the time when obama actually had to come out and talk explicitly about race. because one of the things -- >> he did it here if philadelphia. >> he did it right here in philadelphia. one of the ironies, there's so many ironies in our contemporary political moment, but one of the most powerful ones is the first black president is the one who can talk the least about race. it's the third, fourth and fifth rail for that -- i mean, there's something about race that he knows he can't discuss, and part of what he tried to do in that moment at least was to say let me say something th think is going to bring people together that's forward thinking, and then hopefully i'll never have to bring it up again. and there's something about that, i think, in some ways that is quintessential paranoia. the idea is americans are so fatigued about race, they're so resistant to thinking about racial inclusion that to even bring up the idea of race too often m

a wrong turn but some of us are required to pay for the rest of our live. barack obama himself has admitted to more than a little bit of drug use in his lifetime. he admitted to using marijuana and cocaine in his use. if he had not been raised by white grandparents in hawaii or had not done much of his illegal drug use on but the odds are good he would have been stopped or for a store search and caught and far from being president of the united states today he might not even have the right to vote depending on the state he lives in. >> intelligentsia is from the certainty that religion and reason are in different boxes. and the two are at war with each other. someone who was a rational is not a religious or vice versa. and it is the antidote to religion. this itself is the ultimate irrational idea because of the belief that religion is identical to the west is completely untrue.
